BACKGROUND & AIMS Robust clinical data evaluating fibrosis progression in hepatitis C virus (HCV) liver transplant patients receiving an mTOR inhibitor vs. calcineurin inhibitor (CNI) are lacking. To evaluate fibrosis progression in maintenance liver transplant patients receiving everolimus- or CNI-based immunosuppression. METHODS In a randomised,(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Classical features of autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) may be altered during the abrupt onset of the disease. Corticosteroid therapy can be life-saving, but its use in the fulminant presentation of AIH (F-AIH) remains controversial. We aimed to assess the clinical features of patients with F-AIH and to describe the role of corticosteroids in(More)
There is significant geographic variation in the etiologies and prognoses of acute liver failure (ALF). The aims of the present study were to determine the causes and short-term outcomes of ALF in Argentina, to evaluate the performance of prognostic criteria, and to identify clinical prognostic factors of death. We performed a retrospective analysis of 154(More)
BACKGROUND In 2005, the model of end-stage liver disease (MELD)-based allocation system was adopted to assess potential liver transplant (LT) recipients in Argentina. The aim of the present study was to revise the activity of the MELD Exception Experts Committee. METHODS Between 2005 and 2009, 1623 patients were listed for LT. Regulation provides(More)
This paper presents a multiagent system that can process stereoscopic images and detect people with a stereo camera. In the first of two phases, the system creates a model of the environment using a disparity map. It can be constructed in real time, even if there are moving objects present in the area (such as people passing by). In the second phase, the(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM The Up-to-7 criteria on the basis of the explanted liver features categorize patients at higher risk of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) recurrence after liver transplantation (LT). The aim of this study was to propose a novel pretransplant scoring system to predict recurrence including pre-LT data. PATIENTS AND METHODS From 763(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Surveillance during liver transplantation (LT) waiting list has scarcely been reported in South America. We aimed to describe hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) surveillance during the LT waiting list in the daily practice. PATIENTS AND METHODS A multicenter retrospective analysis in cirrhotic patients was carried out. All patients(More)
